Osmotic and activity coefficients in dilute solutions of ethanol in cyclohexane from freezing-point measurements

  • R. H. Stokes


The calorimeter developed in this laboratory for isothermal enthalpy-of-dilution measurements is adapted for use as an adiabatic calorimeter for freezing-point studies. Results are obtained for ethanol solutions in cyclohexane at mole fractions of ethanol from 0.001 up to 0.08. Activities calculated from the results are used to test association models.

Key words
